Update problem with Ubuntu 9.04Sunday, May 3, 2009 at 18:09 | Posted in computer, linux, ubuntu | Leave a comment
I received this error message before installing security updates to Ubuntu 9.04. A moment earlier the automatic update manager had prompted me to update manually:
E: The package cache file is corrupted
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
What the heck is this? What, if anything, can I do to fix it? I succesfully installed the essential updates so I do not think I need to be worried but I would not mind getting rid of this error message in future and I would appriciate if the update manager worked automatically as hitherto.
